AMD Raven Ridge Performance Data Leaked Ahead of Launch
Yesterday, HP listed the first of the first Raven Ridge-powered notebook and now we have the performance data Ryzen 7 2700U and Ryzen 5 2500U. Based on the fact that both of these processors use the “U” brand, we can assume they’ll have a low-power design. We also know that both of these are based on the Zen architecture and will additionally feature AMD’s Radeon Mobile graphics.
Ryzen 7 2700U
In terms of the Ryzen 7 2700U, the benchmark results revealed that it will be clocked at 2.2GHz with the turbo range being anywhere from 3.8 to 4.0GHz. In terms of raw numbers, the Ryzen 7 2700 U scored 4212 points with 4072 graphics and 6419 physics score. These numbers were a bit lower than the Intel Core i7-8550U. Of course, it should be noted that both Intel and AMD’s chips will be heavily dependent upon the functionality of the notebooks they are used in as factors such as cooling and overall design can influence how much performance they can squeeze out of their processors.
Ryzen 5 2500U
Our information regarding the 7 2700U is rather limited, but we know a lot more about the Ryzen 5 2500U. We know that this processor will feature a base speed of 2GHz and a boosted speed of 3.6GHz. It will also feature a 6MB cache and an integrated GPU. In this particular case, AMD is making use of the Radeon Vega M Graphics.
Notebooks featuring these processors are expected to launch later this year, but we also have word that desktop models are on the way. According to a press release by Noctua, desktop models should be coming sometime next year.
“AMD has made a big impact on the market with its Ryzen architecture and the platform will become even more interesting for compact HTPC builds when the first Ryzen-based APUs are introduced next year,” said Noctua CEO Roland Mossig during a press release regarding its Chromax line of air coolers.
